Grand Bahamas Island Resident Wins Pittsburgh Contest
‘Picture Perfect Pittsburgh’


And, the grand prize winner of the “Picture Perfect Pittsburgh” contest is Nikie Severe of Freeport, Grand Bahama.

VisitPITTSBURGH, in cooperation with The Grand Bahama Island Tourist Board, sponsored the search for the perfect social media travel host from Grand Bahama Island.  And, we found our lucky winner. Check out her entry video that stole the hearts of the judges.

Nikie’s getaway prize includes a six-night stay (Oct. 20-26) at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown. She and her guest will receive two roundtrip airline tickets, courtesy of Vacation Express, from Freeport International Airport to Pittsburgh. Upon arrival, Nikie and her guest will be whisked away to the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Houston Texans Monday Night Football game at Heinz Field, October 20.

They’ll also get to shop ‘til they drop at Grove City Premium Outlets, plus tickets to Pittsburgh attractions such as Wigle Whiskey, ScareHouse and the Duquesne Incline. Before returning home, they’ll be able to shop, once again, this time for souvenirs with a $100 shopping voucher from the WELCOME PITTSBURGH Information Center and Gift Shop in Fifth Avenue Place.

A requirement of the grand prize is that Nikie must post social media commentary during her voyage. With the array of places she's visiting, she’s sure to do a great job promoting the city back home to her friends and family. Follow Nikie’s journey on Twitter and Instagram, @NikieSevere.

“Congratulations to Nikie and we are excited for her to experience our great city,” said Craig Davis, president and CEO of VisitPITTSBURGH. “She’ll surely found out why we’re one of America’s best vacation destinations.”

The contest promotes the one-month trial of a direct flight between Pittsburgh and Grand Bahama Island. VisitPITTSBURGH and Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board, their members and partners have collaborated to have residents from both places consider these destinations when selecting a vacation destination. Response to the trial could mean a regular flight between these two destinations beginning in 2015.
